The Right is attacking the left and saying our doom is upon us; the Left is rubbing it in the faces of the Right. Ten years ago, Los [...]

Un spectacle extraordinaire que le réalisateur a capturé en images et concocté en un magnifique time-lapse. Des nuances de bleu, violet et vert apparaissent et s’agitent dans le [...]
So often, we see videos of photographers sharing about the creation of their images after the fact. While this is great for presenting the information in a more detailed and refined fashion, it’s easy to lose some of the uniqueness that went into the whole process.
